GUIDE FOR DONATIONS

MOST IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ
Thank you for helping people in distress by supporting Omnis Association.
Unfortunately we only have limited storage facilities at the moment, so it is important that you only donate what
we need now. The list is constantly changing, and you can be kept aware by visiting the FB page or the website.

Donations arrive here at our depot where they are sorted, boxed and labelled and shipped
to refugee camps in the Middle East (with some donations going to people in distress in France).
Container space is expensive so we only send durable items which are in very good condition.

We do not have the funds or resources to launder clothing. The recipients are often people
without access to laundry facilities, so please wash your donations prior to delivery.

Donations should be:
CLEAN AND FOLDED, FREE FROM RIPS, TEARS AND STAINS, DURABLE (shoes and clothing may have to last someone a long time)
IN GOOD OR NEARLY NEW CONDITION, IN WORKING ORDER (especially for electrical items!)

Ideally deliver your donations:
IN SEPARATE BAGS LABELLED: “MENS”, “WOMENS”, “CHILDREN” - PLEASE DON’T PUT FOOTWEAR IN WITH CLOTHING.

THESE ARE ONLY DONATIONS NEEDED IN JANUARY 2017:

CLOTHING:
Childrenswear and footwear for ages 0 – 16 yrs
Footwear for adults (Only: trainers, ballerina shoes, hiking boots, size 44 max)
